Costrochrondritis: Inflammation of the structures of the chest wall whcih can be due to autoimmune diease may explain this. Consider evaluation with your MD including a screening blood test, such as an ANA and ESR.

Mgt: I would suggest an evaluation. From your description, the sensation of chest pressure, could be related to cardio-pulmonary conditions. The relief from the anti inflammatory agent, does not exclude these causes.
